Our Initiatives for the Environment
As a sogo shosha, ITOCHU provides various products and services and invests in businesses inside and outside of Japan, and positions global environmental problems as one of the top priority issues in management. In order to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society, ITOCHU is promoting environmental conservation activities.
ITOCHU is rolling out corporate management and activities on a global scale while always being aware of global environmental problems.
ITOCHU Corporation became the first trading company to establish an environmental management system (EMS) based on ISO 14001, and we continue to work to improve our EMS.
In addition to evaluating environmental risks of the products we handle, we are committed to taking a precautionary approach to environmental risks. This also extends to ITOCHU Group companies.
ITOCHU is working to raise environmental awareness across the entire ITOCHU Group by running various environmental education programs.
ITOCHU conducts activities in the hope that it can contribute widely to society and to the prosperity of future generations as a good corporate citizen.
ITOCHU pursues environment-conserving activities starting from what all employees can do in their immediate surroundings.
